Hi all! I wanted to introduce myself and my RV. My family and I drove down to the Reno area back in July and picked up a 1993 GS Ultra 26 that had been converted to 4x4. It's a pretty sweet setup, with the 4-bunk room in the rear - the kids love it. It had a lot of water damage from roof and window leaks, so I replaced the roof (sheeting and membrane) as well as the FRP on the ceiling. We reinforced with rough cedar "beams" across the ceiling and we've been gradually remodeling with ship lap, wallpaper and peel/stick tile. I'll have to post some before and after pics.

Anyway, it's an ongoing process, and I have some questions I'll be posting in various forums. Thanks in advance for your patience and knowledge!

We are the proud owners of a 1996 GS Ultra 33ft, so ask away if you have any questions. There are very few parts we have not had to work on or replace over the years. The front cabover bunk seems to always be difficult to keep water sealed. Over the years, we have had to replace some of the front bunk parts twice to keep it looking good.

Thanks! We definitely had to do some work on the cabover bunk - had a broken weld in the drivers-side frame. I reattached it with brackets - didn't want to tear it apart enough to weld in there...yet.

I just posted a question in the Electrical forum - maybe something you know about?

Welcome! Enjoy that big beauty! Feel free to share some interior pics too. I’m curious about that bunk conversion.
